There are numerous food stalls along the highway. Melons-
Cold drinks and cooked corn-
As well as halvasi- candy which is made from peanuts, honey, sesame flour and whatever else they might add-
You never know what else you might have to slow down for-
There are billboards of the President everywhere-
There are huge entrance gates like this to cities. This is the one at Sheki-
We visited the Khan Palace in Sheki, the summer home, which was built in 1797 but recently remodelled-
More intricate wood work on the exterior of the palace-
The stained glass windows are set in wooden latticework, without nails or glue. This is Marianne in front of one of the beautiful windows-
There are many artisans in Sheki. Hat makers-
Here are some other colorful shops-
This is a typical street scene-
Leaving Sheki, this is the scenery along the way. It's a very dry climate!
Our next stop was at some mud volcanoes. They are very weird, in fact, it seemed like we were on a different planet!
